Each of General Motors’ four U.S. brands earned a segment award in the 2012 J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study. That means GM got its best-ever company score compared to the industry average in the 26-year history of the study.
GM has nine vehicles either receiving a segment award or placing in the top three of their respective segments. As a company, GM outscored the industry average.
For the first time, GM occupies the top three spots in the Large Pickup Segment with the GMC Sierra LD, and Chevrolet Silverado HD and Avalanche, finishing one-two-three respectively.
